Dermal Fillers (30 mins)
Dermal fillers are injections used to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin. They are also used in lip augmentation, non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), and jawline/chin correction procedures. Fillers are popular with those seeking a swift, non-surgical solution for ageing skin that has lost volume as the collagen that previously helped to shape and support it has disappeared.
During your appointment at the Belfast Skin Clinic you may be offered a local anaesthetic cream or injection. The practitioner injects the filler in a series of small injections and may massage the area. The treatment time can vary from 30 minutes to an hour.
The fillers are made from a variety of materials and the length of time that the effects last will vary depending on the type of filler. We only use the best and safest dermal filler to ensure maximum results.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin’s connective tissue and is the most common filler used for wrinkles. The results typically last about six months to one year.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is a type of filler used to contour the jaw line, restore volume in the cheeks, and treat deeper wrinkles and skin folds. The results last up to one year when used for contouring and three years when used to fill wrinkles.
